  • Class of 1976! We look forward to seeing you for your 40th Veterinary School reunion.

  • Hello!

    Time passes quickly as I’m afraid we have all learned. We graduated 40 years ago so thought we would try to celebrate at the alumni reunion in May. We’ve never had a big turnout for reunions, though they have always been fun.

    The school does some events including a cocktail party Friday. Also, we can plan a dinner for Fri. and/or Sat. if we know about how many will be there.

    Please send me a response and if possible something about yourself that I can print out and share with everyone. You might include hobbies, retired or not, family, thoughts about the profession past or present, interesting experiences etc. Please put quotes around what I can print. A form should be enclosed with this note if you want to use that.

    Please email or mail to:

    Dr. Susan Smith

    4026 Bradys Run Rd

    Beaver, PA 15009

    Looking forward to seeing you!

    There are many wonderful events planned for Alumni Weekend on May 13-15th and you can visit the Alumni Website to sign up for those activities as well.  A dinner celebration will be an additional bonus if we get several positive responses. 

    It is incredibly hard to believe it has been 20 years!!!  I know how much many of us would enjoy being together again laughing at the old tales and catching up on new ones. I hope to hear from you all soon!
